Trying to publish and App - You don't have permission to search for Azure Active Directory (Azure AD

Some peope at a customer have been made workspace admins, but cannot publish an App. They get the error:

"You don't have permission to search for Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) objects. Please contact your Azure AD administrator for permission."

 

Can anyone give some guidance on what needs to be done to aleviate this?

HI @NewOzzie ,

I think they are work in new workspace, right? If this is a case, since new workspaces are host on azure side, these users also require azure permission for operation on azure objects.
You can refer to following document to know more about this:

Publish an app in Power BI#publish-your-app

Hi Xiaoxin

 

Do you know what permissions the users need on Azure for this?

 

Thanks,

HI @NewOzzie ,

I think you need at least azure account and access permissions to operate these azure object. 
BTW, did you works on active directory account? If that is a case, current you need to migrate it and use azure active directory account to instead.

Thanks Mate.

 

That article does not explain how we give these users permission to be able to do so.

Please advise?

 

Thanks

Did you ever figure this out?

Hey @PookletNZ 

hope this is still an open issue to you, I had the same problem today with a customer and could figure out the problem came from a company setting that was set to false using PowerShell. The command is: 

Set-MsolCompanySettings -UsersPermissionToReadOtherUsersEnabled $true

if this is set to $false you will receive the error message, the default is $true. If you change this to $true, it should work again. For more information please checkout my blog post:

Hope this helps you!
